The Michael Baisden Show Partners with Black and Missing Foundation
National Radio Program Will Feature Profiles of Missing Children
In an effort to raise awareness for the thousands of missing children of color, Michael Baisden announced that The Michael Baisden Show has formed a partnership with The Black and Missing Foundation. As part of its commitment, the nationally syndicated radio program will highlight a child who is currently missing every day during the show. Key in this effort is informing listeners how they can help provide information to local law enforcement agencies. Critical details about these missing African American, Hispanic and Asian children will also be profiled on the show’s websites and social media outlets. The radio feature will also discuss child safety issues and provide tips for parents.
“Our listeners have shown time and again they are more than willing to get involved and help worthy programs,” said Baisden. “I’m proud to know that our recent broadcasts focusing on these missing children have already generated several credible leads and reunited one missing child with their family. This is an issue that has not received the attention it deserves and our show intends to be part of changing that.”
“There are far too many missing children today in the United States and we want to bring them home,” said Derrica Wilson, president of The Black and Missing Foundation. “Too often we see cases where children of color are missing and they are underpublicized and unnoticed through a lack of local and national media attention. Our goal is to help families find their children and inform communities across the country how they can help. Having our cases featured on The Michael Baisden Show will provide tremendous exposure for this effort. We’re profoundly grateful for the opportunity to reach Michael’s audience.”
